Scholarship Details and Application
The Pagely Scholarship for Underrepresented Students
At Pagely, we value the commitment to life-long learning from our future tech leaders. Starting the learning process may create stress due to higher education costs. Pagely wants to help return the focus to academics.
Now in its 2nd year, the Pagely Scholarship plans to award $500 to three inspiring students. Our focus acknowledges the under-represented and often overlooked bright student.
We were incredibly inspired by last year’s applicants and finalists, and we can’t wait to see who joins us this year.

$1,500 evenly distributed between three selected students
- Accepted into an accredited college/university
- Currently enrolled undergraduate student
- Please write an 800 to 1500 word essay on how you hope to personally contribute to technological advances throughout your lifetime. We encourage authenticity, integrity, and vulnerability. What aspects of your life contribute to these hopes? What specifics do you hope to achieve? How could this change the future of tech?
- Please record a 5 minute video. In your video, provide a summary explaining your essay. Share it with us via YouTube link. Typically one-take, unrehearsed videos prove best.
- Submit proof of enrollment or an acceptance letter from an accredited university. Crosscheck that your school exists in the official website of the U.S. Department of Education.
